The growing popularity of the Internet has made information more accessible to people from all walks of life.  Thus, looking for real estate for sale whether for residential or commercial purpose is fairly easy even without the help of a real estate agent or broker.

Research shows that 32% of real estate buyers this year used the Internet to seek information on the property which they ultimately purchased. So did the Internet made real estate agents and brokers a thing of the past?

Real estate brokers and agents disagree.  While the Internet offers an efficient method by which buyers can find homes and other properties, you still need real estate brokers and agents to enter into negotiations that will be beneficial for you.

Real estate agents are also more knowledgeable about the inner workings of real estate purchase and they can help you in following the appropriate processes to finalize your real estate purchase.

So the next time you need to find properties for sale, use the Internet if you may but get a real estate agent or broker to fast the purchase process according to existing real estate laws.
